Priced at a cool 20¢ a bowl, this frozen treat is just as refreshing when it's made with orange or raspberry gelatin. "My family especially enjoys it in the summer," relates Julie Bendenstein of Arcola, Indiana.

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • 4 cups cold whole milk

  2. Transfer to a large bowl; beat for 2 minutes. Return to pan. Cover and freeze for 1 hour; stir.
  3. Freeze 1 hour longer or until firm. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
